Mirzya, MS Dhoni, Pink: Box Office Collection Report

Mirzya‘ has opened very poorly at the box office on Friday. The all-India average occupancy for the morning and noon shows was less than 10%. Due to the dull trailer and lack of awareness amongst the audience, it was a foregone conclusion that ‘Mirzya’ would open poorly, but there was hope that the film would garner good reviews. Unfortunately, even that hasn’t happened.

Why did Anil Kapoor’s son Harshvardhan opt for a film like ‘Mirzya’ for his debut? The audience wants happier films that come with some entertainment value attached, but ‘Mirzya’ looked boring from the trailer and the audience simply weren’t interested. It seems to be a case of the actor signing the film looking only at the director’s track record – Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra after a classic like ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’.

‘Mirzya’ looks certain to be a big disaster and even recovering the marketing costs from domestic theatrical business could prove to be difficult, if the film does not show big growth on Saturday and Sunday.

MS Dhoni: The Untold Story‘ opened very well last weekend, but could not sustain over the weekdays. The drops were big and if the film doesn’t hold over the weekend, it could even struggle to achieve ‘hit’ status. ‘MS Dhoni’ needs around 110 crore to attain hit status.

  • dhoni will hold very well admin. plus it has 2 big holidays – dusherra and muharram on weekdays . it will definitely cross 140cr mark

  • Instead of calling dhoni the 2nd biggest 1st week scorer of the year u r busy talking abt drops..!! here is a reality check – airlift with strong wom had 6cr Wednesday & 5cr Thursday. …!!! bt it recovered well in 2nd week to score 28cr. actually this happens to every plex big earner bcz most plex audiences r busy on weekdays hence these films become weekend heavy. just wait & watch dhoni will score a 35cr 2nd week and LT will b 140cr+…!!

    i don’t know wat issue u hv with sushant but u hv clearly treated the film very badly. disappointed

  • Sad to look at Dhoni’s trend, from a film that seemed to be a major 140-170 cr grosser during the first 3 days to a mere struggler to recover investment.

    Nothing surprising about Mirziya here. It has already joined the league of Fitoor and Mohenjodaro to be the biggest disaster of the year.

    I think the top 5 grossers of the year should be this way:

    Sultan- 302 cr
    Dangal- 285 cr
    Shivaay- 135 cr
    Airlift- 129 cr
    Rustom- 127 cr

  • Next year looks very exciting, each film looking better than the other. My personal expectations for Top 10 grossers:

    Baahubali 2- 350 cr (all languages)
    Robot 2- 350 cr (all languages)
    Tubelight- 330 cr
    Tiger Zinda Hai- 315 cr
    Raees- 220 cr
    The Ring- 180 cr
    Padmavati- 180 cr
    Golmaal 4- 160 cr
    Crack- 150 cr
    Kaabil- 140 cr
    Jolly LLB 2- 120 cr

  • Golmaal 4 set to release diwali 2017….

    Ajay and Rajnikant sir clash is still on…!!!!!

    Great!!!!

  • @arjun:on what basis r u predicting 140 plus for ms dhoni??.can’t u see the trend during week days n don’t compare it with airlift.airlift was released in just 2200 screens while ms dhoni on nearly 4000 including Tamil n Telugu.it will settle max at around 120 to 125 max.by the way it was just bcoz of dhoni n his brands that he endorses n director neeraj pandey it took big opening not bcoz of susant even though he acted superbly.

  • @indicine- ur constant talks of drops of ms dhoni seems absurd.. its doing fine for the weekdays after huge weekend.. I don’t know how u r seeing it.. I think its doing exceptionally well.. second weekend is round the corner n also a few holidays.. 110crores should be a cakewalk.. it looks like 130cr lifetime.. its quite strange looking at ur prediction.. ms dhoni will collect 120cr atleast thats a given as much as I understand trade n figures..

  • Harshvardhan Kapoor couldn’t have found himself a better film to debut with. This is what you said earlier in the review article. And now you’re asking “Why did Anil Kapoor’s son Harshvardhan opt for a film like ‘Mirzya’ for his debut?”. And you’re saying ” It seems to be a case of the actor
    signing the film looking only at the director’s track
    record”. Why this hypocrisy indicine? I never expected something like this from you.

  • Harshvardhan is’nt a superstar material and I think he knows that. Maybe he wants to become another Irrfan Khan or Naseeruddin Shah, that’s why he opted for a dark movie rather than an entertainer.

  • Tony i like your prediction but i think some star’s movies like
    varun’s (judwaa2)
    and sidharth’s (reloaded)
    should do wonders at box office and should lead movies like (jolly llb 2)

  • @arjun
    Compare the opening and weekend collections of Airlift and MSD first and look at the drop levels of MSD.

    Airlift weekend- 44.3 cr
    Week 1- 83 cr

    MSD weekend- 66 cr
    Week 1- 94 cr

    Don’t look at the numbers, compare the trend of both the films. Even Rustom had more collections in its first week compared to Airlift, but could it surpass Airlift?

  • My question to Indian audience since I am not familiar to it. I would expect an answer irrespective of whose fan are you?

    Would Raees still get that kind of a momentum which it could have got half a year ago. Normally the historical data tells that delay in screening results in negativity?

  • @arjun
    That makes no sense, Airlift took an average start of 40 cr+ weekend and consistently scored in the long run.
    Whereas Dhoni after such huge initials is scoring low, which clearly indicates that it won’t to do that great business in the coming days. The trend is similar to Singham Returns.

  • “Harshvardhan Kapoor couldn’t have found
    himself a better film to debut with”. This is
    what you said earlier in the review article.
    And now you’re asking “Why did Anil
    Kapoor’s son Harshvardhan opt for a film like
    ‘Mirzya’ for his debut?”.

    And you’re saying ”It seems to be a case of the actor
    signing the film looking only at the director’s track
    record”. Why this hypocrisy indicine? I never
    expected something like this from you.

  • @Ally ji Don’t Forget Ajay Devgn..he is also in the league of irfan, naserdun…Maybe in Future Harshwardan will Find a director like Rohit shetty who made a non commercial actor like Ajay a commercial star by singham, golmaal…!

    @Darkasht Aisha Exactly..Both Ajay & Rajni have very limited fan following in North So they are clashing In North because of their equal stardom down here..

    Rohit shetty is clashing with Akshay..their movies opens to Good to very good response every time .

    Ajay is hutch ka chhota recharge in front of Akshays fan following in North & rajni’s fan following in South..No Comparison here. It’s like Jameen-asmaan ka Fark…!

  • @Jolly Akkiholic

    Ohh boy boy is that so??

    But 85% of Rohit movies were produced by Ajay Devgn.

    When Rohit was nobody before Ajay brought him to limelight….Ajay’s Production house movie Hindustan ki Kasam broke all the opening day records in 1999!!!

    So exactly, if Harsh is following Ajay devgn footstep I agree for Rohit Shetty to sign him …he has to do the following

    1. His 1st debut movie should be a super hit and he should also win Best debut actor.

    2. He should give a bumper all India record breaking opening before going to Rohit.

    3. He should at least win 2 National awards before going to Rohit

    4. He should be Rohits effective Producer for their movie.

    5. He should establish himself as a solo bankable hero before knocking at Rohits door …..

    Then he can be in Manoj, Who again? Oh OK,Nasserdin, Irfan ,ajay category…. Right????

  • 💘💘💘….. HEARTBREAK IF THE CLASH WILL TAKE PLACE FOR FANS LIKE YOU.

    ideally indicine suppose to right off clash of G4 with robot 2.0 especially what happened with Dilwale with one of the countries biggest superstar though I will say its a bad luck BUT they know the super hit Jodi of Ajay -his boy Rohit Shetty clashing with whose so ever movie will affect a drastic collection in Pan India.
    FACT!!!

    Nb: other sensible Akki fans,I never intended or am not even dragging Akki in this issue cos I did not even mention his name in my last 2 reply to @Jolly Akkiholic.. Despite him degrading Ajay at Akki expense in his last paragraph… Am more matured and even commended Akshay on yesterday article big time ,I just posted the clash is taking place cause many may not know but the press announced it officially from Ajay’s camp. I also believe with without Diwali both Rajni and Akshay movies can open huge based on their present released movies on non holiday…it is your chewing gum jealous rat @akkiholic that started going off topic…
    Phir bhi, if other Akki fans think am taking a dig at Akki still which am sure the matured ones won’t except @Jolly or some unknown new IDs am not responding but you are free to bash whoever you want.
    Thanks….

  • Indicine…my other comment after 9.01 comment where I shared your last q&a reply to G4 and robot 2.0 clash 5days back…? Pls nothing wrong with it it and the last one I posted too….thanks

  • @Tony, Baahubali itself did 390 crores in all versions in India. Do u expect Baahubali 2 to collect less than 1st part??? Baahubali 2 and Robot 2.0 will do sure shot 450 crores in all versions. Even Tubelight can break the lifetime collections of PK if the movie is as good as Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

  • In the last month or so, whichever team did not go on The Kapil Sharma Show, their movie (Pink & MS Dhoni) have been huge hits.
    Katrina Kiaf came first time onTKSS and she had the biggest disaster of her career (Fitoor and then also Baar Baar Dekho).
    Aamir Khan has never been on TKSS and he has the biggest hits to his credit. Good movies don’t need promotions. Promotions help for first day or max 3 days after that it works if the audience loves it.

  • Anyone call ajay devgan non commercial actor before shetty is absurd lol. Ajay was always a commercial actor especially in intense action hero just because he ventured in some parallel cinema post 2000 doesn’t mean he was a non commercial actor

  • @DarkastAisha. Marvelous reply epic retaliation in style. Always your fan. I wish both movies tremendous success. I am not bias I am real.

  • @9.01 . Epic Tight slap on some street side market labourers who lack decency like the man you just slammed. Rock Rock .
    That’s why I love this movie Site Indicine its the best where everyone turns hero or complectly zero0 according to their level of thinking.

  • Ha ha well said ajay is nothing without Rohit Shetty . Ajay devgan fan following is limited even Ranbir & varun better than him . His well appreciated Drishyam collection is only 72 crore . Even akki Special 26 did 70 crore with less number of screen around 1700 screen & Drishyam screen 2300 . His cult film like The legend of bhagat Singh , gangajal , zakhm couldn’t get hit status . And akki special 26 , baby , omg , airlift & Rustom did better than Ajay cult film . Ajay is far behind than salman , aamir , srk , akki & hrithik we can compare him Manoj , Siddiqui , irfan khan khans stardom .

  • Whtvr u say Dumb Dumb; but It’s rohit who made ajay a star. Tell me any superhit of ajay without shetty in 21st century? That’s Enough to prove my point .

    And national award reminds me of naserudin,irfan so yeah ajay is in their league .

    Rohit with Ajay > above average, hit, sprhit.

    Ajay without rohit > Disasters, flops, average and only 4 hits..only 1 as main lead hit(2000-2016) shame Shame

    Rohit with SRK > Top 2 highest grossers…

    Clearly shows where ajay stands without rohit, while rohit Is superhit without ajay.

  • Ajay track record before rohit shetty

    Pak – blockbuster
    Jigar – hit
    Dilwale – superhit
    Suhaag – hit
    Vijay path – hit
    Jaan – hit
    Ishq – superhit
    Dil jale – semi hit
    Pthht – superhit
    Kaache daag – hit
    Bhoot – hit
    Ouatim – hit
    SOS – hit

    That’s long list of huge hits before his calloboration with shetty. It’s devgan production launched shetty. Ajay was one of most successful solo heroes of 90s, he was alway a commercial hero.
